* Reset the CMD_CTRL Register, without which read/writes in STIG mode
were failing in some cases. The issue came to light while using STIG
Mode for small reads.
* Also add a flag that can allow us to do direct reads but distinguish
direct writes, thus enabling us to disable writes in DAC mode in some
cases that require it. (Like to write to some connected Flash registers)
* Fix register reads in STIG mode and also use STIG mode while reading flash
Currently if you try to read a register while in STIG mode there is no
support for ADDR and thus naturally a register never gets read from the

This patch series has been tested on a TI AM625-SK-EVM with both a quad
spi nor flash (s25hs) and OSPI NOR Flash (s28hs).
